Urban resource management

The identification and understanding of flows, stocks of materials and their mapping requires increasingly precise and transparent management. Taking water as an example of a resource, cities can harness the potential of water reuse to address water scarcity and drought. At the same time, the use of resources by the public administration must take into account, in addition to qualitative, performance and economic parameters, also aspects of sustainability.
